ABOUT


Chisato Yasui was born in Aichi, Japan in 1984 and she is a ceramic and mixed media artist. She graduated with an MA in Art and Design from the University of Tsukuba in 2010. She currently lives in Tsukuba-city, Ibaraki where she continues to create her work while raising three children together with her husband.
Chisato’s aim is to visualise the things we usually cannot see such as “harmony” and “relationships”, by making viewers conscious of them through her work. She thinks art work can exist like a groundwater vein to connect various things. For example, connecting everyday to extraordinary, oneself to others, subconscious to conscious... She wants her work to function in this way.
She has always loved to create since she was a child. Most of her work had been expressed by painting in watercolors, oils, acrylics until she met Prof. Toshiju Saito who is a professor of ceramics at the University of Tsukuba and also a ceramic artist. This encounter with Toshiju Saito and ceramics brought a great opportunity and a major turning point of her work. Her main medium of expression has been ceramics since then.
Chisato was hugely influenced by her professor, Toshiju Saito who works in ceramics and iron. His theme is “archetype”. He said, “In creation, we should not impose our image on the material. Just do not obey the material's voice. Look closely at the relationship between the material and us. And it is important to find out how we are involved in the molding process and how much we control the material and ourselves. In that way we should train ourselves to find out the truth with our own sense.”
At the same time, she experienced childbirth in the first year of her master's degree. She could sense that "Children are born on their own, they descend to the ground with their will. So when I am giving birth I do not need to get nervous or put any strength on my body. All I need to do is to relax the body and create a space in my heart and body. It is important that I feel myself becoming a pathway for children to come here.” This experience has been fundamental to her creative process.
